Last night was a tv night for us, so we watched the programs we enjoy until 11 pm. We’d forgotten about The Good Doctor so it was included and was very good. That is late for me to stay up so I dropped off immediately after a peek out my window. There are lights in the Casino parking lot so things are lit up well. I could see a late arrival of a truck and travel trailer, who pulled in at the end, not in a site. That is also an option if these sites aren’t available.
|I can't think of any better way to start my morning|
Tea with cream in my alien camping cup
Through the wee hours of the morning on Tuesday, Mar. 13th Clemson woke up with an upset tummy and we had a bit of cleanup in the bed at 4 am. Of course, he needed to go out as well. Between my late night and that wake up, it might explain why I slept in until 8:30!! Holy cow! I haven’t done that in a very long time. Bill remained asleep until 9 before he and Clemson crawled out of bed.
|Bill tried the Casino gas station first but they were out of diesel|
The first station in town, Phillps 66, had $4 worth left
then we ended up at Love's
I’m getting lazy here in the cooler mornings. I’m not walking much. It is different than in a park but still lots of places to walk so that is NO excuse. Do better, Patsy! I admonish myself. We had our tea and coffee together with a half a grapefruit. Yum, they are so tasty. Naturally, the morning was gone in no time but the temperature slowly rose from 34F to 46f in the first two hours of our day.

We’d bought cinnamon rolls, similar to the Pillsbury brand, so I baked those up for our breakfast. I don’t like the sweet icing so had lots of butter smeared on mine. After dishes, Bill got cleaned up first and drove across the roadway in to the gas station to fuel up. That didn’t work out quite so well since they were ‘out’ of diesel. Hmm. We will be heading out tomorrow morning so like to top up while unhooked. We all drove into El Reno to the Love’s. At $2.69/gal who can argue the price?!

One of his favourite stores here

When we returned I went for a walk around the area with my zoom lens in the hopes of catching the little ‘doggies’ in the field. I’ve noticed a spot on my camera lens/sensor again so want to see if I have as much luck with cleaning that like I did the last time. I guess, my camera is an extension of my arm and goes everywhere with me, so maybe that is why this happens? Not sure but it can be annoying!
|Clemson is happy to go for a ride even if he sleeps most of the time|
|Bill checks out sales in HIS store|
The critters were out again in full force, I saw about 8 scooting around and did the best to catch some of them on ‘film’. When I returned, the sun was so warm and I noticed that the picnic table between the Suite and Black Beauty was sheltered from the wind. You know I’m going to sit there with my book, don’t you? I was probably out there an hour or so before the flimsy clouds moved in from the south and semi-covered the sun. They brought the cool air with them.

I moved inside and we sat with our books.
|It was a pretty nice day|
I managed to finish Skeleton Canyon before 4 o’clock. We got cleaned up a bit and walked over to the Casino with our Player’s Cards that we got last spring. I noticed on the sign that Tuesday was His and Hers day so I asked at the desk what that meant. We were pleased that once we earned 5 points, we could claim $10 at the Player’s Club.
|It was like hide and seek|
Bill and I set our limit, earned our points, claimed our free $10 and at the end I walked away with $18 plus $10 on my card for next time. That was enough to almost pay for our dinner in their restaurant. I ordered the Loaded Cheeseburger Burrito and Bill ordered the bacon Cheeseburger. Another enjoyed dinner although I would not order that burrito again. It was good but not what I expected. Bill reminded me that this is a Native version, not Mexican. That made sense.
|Not quite what I expected but good all the same|
We walked back across the parking lot and I took Clemson out for a short walk. There is something about the grass that he doesn’t like, he won’t walk on it. I don’t know what it feels like to his little paws so we let him walk on the pavement. There must be something uncomfortable about it. Inside, we watched some of our regular Tuesday night programs and recorded the finale episode of This is Us. I’m still 3 shows behind on watching these.
